Classic Grilled Steak

When we talk about grilling steaks, my first thought always goes back to my dad. He used to grill steak for us kids at least once a week, and we loved it. Make that “LOVED it.” The caps lock is essential. Sometimes, he’d serve a steak with sauteed mushrooms and onions flavored with garlic, salt and pepper. Sometimes, he’d serve a steak cooked low and slow, making a less expensive cut as tender as could be. Whatever he did with a steak, it was done well (please don’t confuse that for well done) and it created a lifelong love for one of our greatest dinner delicacies: steak.

Here is our go-to recipe for the perfect grilled steak, good for a family dinner, date night or Valentine’s Day. Just season the sirloin cuts slightly, place on a hot grill and let it rest before slicing to keep it nice and juicy. Now you can grill steak like a pro. Dig in!
